Wine Escape Room, The Dare, Electric Bike Wine Tours and Accommodation
Escape games are the most popular phenomenon in the world where their are a variety of puzzles and clues that you need to figure out to escape. WE THOUGHT - why can't we do something completely different but use these elements to create something that has never been done before (to our knowledge). Well here it is - The DARE is best described as a cross between an outdoor Escape Room, a Treasure Hunt, Murder Mystery and a Haunted House, all in one.
Your mission - Should you choose to accept, is to make your way through each section, solve the mystery and get out before you........ well I can't say too much. You will need to come and try it.
The Dare is a physical outdoor adventure game in which players are let loose in 27 acres and have to use elements of the surroundings to conquer a series of puzzles, solve the mystery and escape within a set time limit.
At "The Dare", we host a real life mystery experience games which are fun and engaging live action activities which take place in our specially designed set. Suited for small groups of up to 20 people total per session, you and your team will be given a back story that includes an objective, and you will only have 45 minutes to complete your mission and escape the property. To do all that, you will need to work as a team to solve a series of puzzles that will test your logic, lateral thinking and ingenuity. Please note smaller groups may be combined with other groups to make it more fun.
Experience games are an all inclusive activity that require no special skills or tools, except the most powerful tool you already have - your brain and the love of fun helps.
We wanted to develop a game that's great with the electric bikes, the wine escape room and also an outdoor experience. I have personally experienced a few escape rooms and they offer a great experience to figure out the clues. " It's like living in a computer game but you are in control".
You will have a walkie talkie If you need to leave the game and you can at any time.

We do have an option if you want to be driven around the set but it is by appointment only and an extra cost of $15pp on top of entry fee.
